Friday Flash 55

Hurricane Season

She feels the barometric drop
As he turns toward her,
His eyes harbingers of the storm.
Absolute and oppressive,
He sucks the air from the room.

He hurls angry words at her
Where they tumble like boulders,
Crushing communication to wordless grit.
This time, smarter, she packs her bag
And leaves, heading for higher ground.

  1. "Tonight I start the fire
    Tonight I break away

    Break away from everybody
    Break away from everything
    If you can't stand the way this place is
    Take yourself to higher places"

    -'Break', Three Days Grace

    I could hear this song loud and clear, reading these words. This one packs a punch, Patti.

    Here's to higher ground.

  2. We all need the occassional time out. Taking the higher ground is best. Great 55. My 55 is HERE .

  3. You captured the interpersonal storms so well.
